    The successor to the Nintendo Wii is named Wii-U (meaning 'We' and 'You'). Only the controller has been seen so far but already it looks awesome. The controller has a 6.2 inch screen meaning that you can play games on your TV or seamlessly switch to the pads screen should you want to go make a cuppa and dont wanna pause the game.



    I'll post more info and screenshots when the Nintendo conference has finished.

    Here you go. Oh, and you were right about it being white!





    Only a few games have been shown so far but its getting all the big hits by the look of things. Also, the new controller will be usable with the original Wii's games and the screen can be used to play games while using the TV. One game showed you flicking ninja stars off of the controllers screen onto the TV, all good stuff!

    Any sign of the specs yet? I'd love to know how their new baby compares to the veterans, they don't look like they're playing around this time.

    Still waiting on seeing the actual console, E3 is currently showing yesterday's highlights stating that it will be resuming soon. From what I've seen so far the console seems to be able to pretty much match the 360/PS3 in terms of graphics, although a lot of whats been shown so far is novelty stuff demonstrating what the controller can do.

    Hopefully soon we'll get the full tech specs and what media its using to play games.

    Re: Wii U officially annouced!

    Here's Nintendo's official press release, still no specs as yet but should hopefully be coming soon.


    Nintendo introduced a new paradigm for video games and home entertainment: Wii U™, a new console that includes a controller with a 6.2-inch screen. Adding a second screen to the living room creates a multitude of new video game experiences while offering families a variety of options to customize their entertainment.

    Previously, video games played on a home console have been confined to the TV and offered identical viewpoints to each player in a multiplayer
    environment. Furthermore, watching TV and playing console games have been completely separate experiences. The new controller removes these boundaries, creating a more dynamic and fluid gaming and entertainment experience. Visitors to the E3 Expo will see firsthand the type of gaming experiences made possible by Wii U and the new controller such as:

    * In single-player games:
    o The new controller can display information on its screen that does not appear on the TV.
    o The information and viewpoint can also change in the new controller based on the orientation of its gyroscope.
    * In multiplayer games:
    o The player using the new controller can have a different experience than those looking at the TV. This will offer a wide variety of competitive and cooperative opportunities.

    In addition to the 6.2-inch screen, the new controller also features an accelerometer and a gyroscope, a rumble feature, an inward-facing camera, a microphone and speakers. Adding these features to the Classic Controller™ button scheme – two analog Circle Pads, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons – will enable a breadth of game-play experiences while appealing to both casual and dedicated video game players.

    Wii U combines motion-sensing game play with the ability to support full HD graphics. Each Wii U console will be partnered with a new controller and can also use up to four additional Wii Remote™ or Wii Remote Plus controllers. The system is also backward compatible and can play all Wii games and use all Wii accessories. The Wii console has sold more than 86 million units globally and greatly expanded the overall audience for video games. Wii U aims to expand that audience even further. Developers worldwide are already working on new games and experiences for the console.

    “Wii U redefines the structure of home entertainment by fundamentally changing how the TV, the game console and the Internet function and interact together,” said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. “The experience enabled by Wii U and the new controller takes players deeper into their games, while reaching out wider than ever before to be inviting to all kinds of gamers.”
